WorldWater completed the design, engineering and supply of roof-top, ground-mount and covered parking structure solar arrays for the facility’s 500 kW system. Approximately 660,000 kilowatt hours of clean, sustainable energy per year.
The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA), which owns a wastewater treatment plant located near Atlantic City, New Jersey partnered with WorldWater & Solar Technologies to design and install five separate locations, including two ground-mounted and two roof-mounted arrays, and a canopy array. Each array provides solar generated electricity directly to the plant’s electrical system. The project was constructed in two phases. The first phase included the installation of the two roof-mounted arrays, canopy array over the employee parking lot, and a small ground-mounted array for a total output of 280 kW DC. The second phase of the project began included a 220 kW DC ground-mounted array. The project is estimated to produce more than 600,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.
“The WorldWater team exceeded our expectations. The five separate arrays have enabled the ACUA to help reduce demand for electricity during the most expensive peak period, helping to reduce our energy bill.” – Rick Dovey, President, Atlantic County Utilities Authority
